Canas, always reliable, always tasty
Canas's crianza is one of my most regular purchases, and has never yet let me down. A really reliable and tasty Rioja that goes with many dishes.
Nice Rioja, good value for money
No a very heavy Rioja, good with meat or just to drink on a winters day. Have just tried this one years ago, and buy it regulary since.
Versatile fruity wine, great with food but also fantastic to drink on summer afternoons with friends - a go to winery.
Thanks very much, on a recent visit to Rioja Alvesa I tried this and bought somefor home too, very good
Une belle découverte
Nous avons découvert ce vin dans un resto de Barcelone et nous avons été séduits: un excellent vin de convivialité. Revenus au pays, nous avons été ravis de voir qu'il était disponible via Vinissimus! Nous venons de recevoir 6 bouteilles, que nous ne boirons qu'avec des proches, famille et amis
